Prior Work/Life Experience

I have been assigned various works in the Office of the Choirmaster, at St. Benedict Parish, Evansville, Indiana, in our Seminary and School of Theology, including teaching and administration, as a chaplain to the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia, and in our summer youth liturgical leadership program, "One Bread, One Cup."

Other Interests

I love visiting with my family and I enjoy spending time with my friends. I like to travel when the opportunity presents itself. I like to joke around with people and have a good time. 

What Attracted Me to Monastic Life

I came to Saint Meinrad as a diocesan seminarian, and knew that I wanted to be a priest. When I realized that the opportunity existed for me to join a monastic community, that seemed to make more sense for my personality than the more individual life of a diocesan priest.
